La Canada/Flintridge, located at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains, is a haven for those seeking a family-oriented community, excellent schools and a variety of activities to nurture a healthy and active lifestyle. Its name describes the scenic mix of canyons and mountains in this region. Next to the Angeles National Forest in height, its panoramic views of the LA basin are extraordinary, and the lush green spaces of the lower foothills offer serenity and peace. The forests and canyons offer year-round opportunities for camping, hiking, skiing, swimming, boating, picnicking, and horseback riding, a favorite pastime here. The gorgeous Descanso Gardens are a local showcase and a venue for concerts and events. La Canada Flintridge Country Club has a championship golf course, night-lighted tennis courts, and facilities for events.
Generally regarded as a wealthy, affluent community, La Canada Flintridge ranks high on the national scene, and, since its incorporation in the mid 70’s, has retained its property values well. There are a variety of styles of single family homes to choose from, both grand and modest, all in good taste. The excellence of its schools adds to the area’s value.
